Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

In agreement with its Supervisory Board, Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) has appointed Andreas Lange as Managing Director of the company as of today's date. Andreas Lange has accordingly retired from his previous position on the Supervisory Board and will in future represent Heliad Equity Partners as its sole Managing Director. Lange has around 10 years of experience in positions of responsibility in the investment business. He will succeed Bernd Sexauer, who is leaving the company on the basis of mutual agreement as of 30.04.2011 due to a difference in opinion about the company's specific investment focus. The Supervisory Board would like to thank Mr. Sexauer explicitly for the very good work he has performed.

While the previous management favoured a focus on majority stakes in unlisted companies, the Supervisory Board would like to maintain a more open approach towards the potential deal spectrum. Under Andreas Lange's management, Heliad's investment team will, consistent with the company's Articles of Association, therefore also be pursuing opportunities at both unlisted and listed companies and give equal consideration to minority and majority stakes. The company's investment focus on high-growth companies, mostly in German-speaking countries, will be retained without amendment.
